I said OT only cause this involves NVIDIA moreso then ATI, at least it
sounded good in my head =). What disappoints me is I was kinda *hoping*
nvidia would perform that well (~60fps) in Far Cry. Instead they only get
~47fps, which isn't that much better then the 9800XT(~41). Now I really
can't wait to see what ATI will offer as their next-gen.
